Is Obama the worst negotiator ever? At the same time that he is negogiating with the Taliban, he is simultaneously planning to start withdrawing troops from Afghanistan – effectively removing any leverage he may have. “I think this is just the new way to negotiate that I don’t quite understand yet, but I’m sure it’s all going to work out,” Glenn joked.
“ We’re going to get 10,000 (troops) out immediately and then we’ll all be out by 2014,” Pat said of Obama’s plans.
“Okay, but wait a minute. But that doesn’t sound like something that you should announce if you’re negotiating,” Glenn said.
“No, it’s a really good, it’s an excellent negotiation technique,” Pat said.
“No, I don’t think you understand how negotiation works,” Glenn shot back.
